Who would you like to see joining your team? Who would you like to keep? What rumors are you most excited about. This is the place to discuss it…
I must say I was perfectly okay with Xu Liang leaving Guoan, but seeing him wearing Shenhua blue today really got to me.19/12/2012 at 12:12 #10809
Never really settled upon a team as such. But, as I cover Evergrande for the site I will stick with them.
Happy with most of the squad and they seem to be looking to add quality once more, which looks ominous for the rest of the league.
The one area that looks particularly weak is goalkeeper—Lippi doesn’t like Yang Jun and Li Shuai is terrible.
So, with that in mind, fingers crossed for Zeng Cheng who appears to be set to put pen to paper on a free transfer. Young and good at his job. Ideal.19/12/2012 at 13:12 #10815
As with last season as an observer from a far I will stake my plastic support to Fuli. The only reasons for this are:
1. It is Guangzhou team (for now) – same as my family origins (well Sew Hing and Jung Sing – but the mid point works out at about GZ)
2. My Ba helped build Yuexiushan (even tho’ Fuli are no longer ther, but hopefully they will return….).
Big Ups to Donald for covering their games etc.
Would hope that they can build a squad that can challenge for an ACL spot next season.19/12/2012 at 13:37 #10819
Both Guangzhou sides should be strong next season, Evergrande goes without saying, but R&F has made some good signings and it looks like they’ll keep it up. For them, what’s going to be most important is whether Yakubu returns.19/12/2012 at 13:56 #10822
Really hope Zeng Cheng joins Guangzhou Evergrande. He could really grow as a goalkeeper, even more, with a solid team.20/12/2012 at 07:00 #10837
I’m an Evergrande fan. Partly because my family origins are from that region.
I would love to see Zeng Cheng join Evergrande, but we have a ridiculous amount of national teamers. Do Chinese teams usually have this many players on their team? Evergrande has around 40 players in their first team.20/12/2012 at 07:40 #10838
I’m really interested in the final result of the Shide-Aerbin merger (thanks for the informative article). I am a Shide fan, since I studied in Dalian for a year in 2009 and am still not totally sure what to think of all the stuff going on there. But I guess this is Chinese football and as long as there’s a club in Dalian, I’m going to support that.
If they can manage to merge the best players of both teams, additional to the money they have in the back, they should be able to build up a pretty decent team.
Really curious how this all continues.20/12/2012 at 11:02 #10839
Re: Zhou Jiabao—A quick check tells me that both Shenhua and Guoan, for example, both have squads well in excess of 30 players. But, you are right. Evergrande’s is particularly big. The likes of Peng Xinli, Ye Weichao and Gao Zhilin are only going to play on rare occasions. They need loan moves.
Re: Jahn: Aerbin are going to be really interesting in 2013. They had a strong team in the second half of this season and the four guys they’ve brought in from Shide will only strengthen their Chinese core. That’s the key part of mounting a title challenge. It’d be great to have strong sides from Evergrande, Aerbin, Guoan, R&F, Guizhou, Shandong and Jiangsu all fighting for the title/ACL places. Then you have Shenhua…31/12/2012 at 19:00 #10945
As a Fans of Liaoning, the only incident I don’t want to see is selling off players.03/01/2013 at 07:30 #10952
Zeng Cheng and Zhao Peng. Evergrande’s habit of buying national teamers will hurt them. I hate to admit as a fan but seriously…
I heard Yi Teng might be sent on loan, but another rumor I guess.15/01/2013 at 14:43 #11043
Eric Paartalu moves from Brisbane Roar to Tianjin Teda.
A good addition for Tianjin and a gap for Roar to fill.16/01/2013 at 14:38 #11045
Gap? Filled. Should be a fair-sized crowd at the airport on the weekend. Just to be absolutely bloody certain the big fella is on the plane out of here…16/01/2013 at 17:01 #11046
If you think you’ve filled it with Jade North you better get a big tub of polyfilla!16/01/2013 at 17:17 #11048
Good addition to Tianjin’s attack; just hope their defence can cover for him. All the Polyfilla & silicone in China won’t be enough, as Roar have learned with Big Erik…22/01/2013 at 11:41 #11108
Former Tianjin Defender Milan Susak, now with Sepahan, tweets that another Aussie player is off to China – former Brisbane Roar back-to-back Championship skipper: ”Matt mckay has signed for changchun yatai in china, same club he was on loan to couple of years back. good luck to him”
This, after an ill-fated stint with the SPL-version Glasgow Rangers and an injury-interrupted season with Busan I-Park, frequently punctuated by Socceroos duty.
